Nia Jax Talks To Yahoo

Nia Jax Reveals What The Rock Told Her Before First WWE Tryout

Nia Jax recently spoke with the folks from Yahoo for an interview. Featured below are some of the highlights.

On living her dream working in WWE: “I’m living a dream. It sounds cliché, but I am. I get to go out there and truly be myself and show young girls, ‘Look, I can be whatever I want to be. It doesn’t matter my size, or what I look like, or what people think of me. If I put my mind to it, and I work really hard, I can do this. I can do whatever I want.'”

On how sports helped her love her body: “Sports helped me become super, super confident in my body growing up, especially in my high school and college careers. I wasn’t going to be a hot prom chick that everyone wanted to go on dates with, but I was a stellar athlete. Yeah, I was a bigger taller girl but I could kill it on the basketball court and was unstoppable on the volleyball court. That gave me my confidence, knowing that my body had its purpose.”

On what she asked her cousin, The Rock, before her first WWE tryout and what she thought when she arrived to the first camp: “I specifically asked him, ‘Please make sure that nobody knows we’re related.’ I wanted to go in and have a fair shot. Every girl had makeup, hair done. I was like, Oh my gosh, I’m not going to get signed. I thought for sure they’d laugh me out of the building.”
